I wanted this poster to develop an interesting twist on the classic 1939 movie while maintaining vintage time-period characteristics. The Wizard of Oz has become the most viewed film in history and is a true classic too almost everyone. I wanted to develop a creative composition centralizing on the most well-known antagonist the “Wicked Witch of the West”. This poster serves as a true nostalgic piece that incorporates vintage styled typography, flourishes, and historical compositional influences.
In this poster I wanted to play off of their iconic rabbit imagery in my own unique blend and execution. The ultimate goal was to create a tribute poster that would clash the elements of punk, misfits, yet still have a popular appeal (symbolic to how most view their music). Meticulously illustrating the elements were at most importance and especially within the composition and roses.
When creating this poster the most important aspect to capture was to truly develop a poster in how I envisioned Quintin Tarantino's iconic way of directing films. Pulp Fiction (1994) is undeniably Tarantino’s most iconic film so I wanted this poster to develop an undeniably original one-of-a-kind feel and look. I approached this poster in a somewhat pop art feel with a warm limited color pallet in almost a comic book execution. The composition was greatly inspired by the “Golden Ratio” of design with the grid based elements.
"Mother..." Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 film, “PSYCHO” is renowned to many critiques as Hitchcock's greatest film. The importance of this poster was to capture the suspense and convey a nostalgia of the iconic thriller.
When creating this poster, I wanted to capture the essence of the infamous characters Walter White and Jessie Pinkman from AMC’s original “Breaking Bad”. The illustration pays homage to one of the most iconic television shows of all-time.
The true classic horror film “The Bride of Frankenstein” laid a foundation for the genre of Horror for decades to come. In this poster visually depicting undeniably, the most recognizable couple of the horror films of Hollywood was a thrill. I wanted this poster to feel time-honored and yet maintain some contemporary stylistic elements.
For this poster I wanted to centralize on Natalie Portman’s iconic portrayal of the black swan in the film. My goal was to give a sinister look to the poster while creating a dramatic feel, and embracing a level of sophistication.
The Great Gatsby (Original Film Poster) When creating this poster, I wanted to bring to life the complexity and vibrancy of the Art Deco style. This poster I based off one of my favorites the iconic 2013 film rendition of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 classic. I wanted to maintain a somewhat effective limited color pallet for each element.
The goal of this illustrative tribute piece was to switch it up a bit and focus on a strong design element as well as illustrative. “The Amazing Spider-Man” piece is unique because it serves as informational and artistic in a way that is viewed as the front page of MARVEL’S iconic Dailey Bugle. I wanted the essence of Spider-Man to capture the nostalgic feel of the great 60's/70's comics.
This poster focuses on the most iconic antagonistic force to ever storm cinema history. Darth Vader and the Storm Troopers continue to be the constant for George Lucas’s Star Wars films and has made an everlasting influence spanning across decades. “The Dark Side” poster was extremely fun to craft from start to finish. I started this poster almost completely monochromatic to produce dramatically accurate tonal renderings, and then blended a large palette of color on top of it all.
The key element of this poster was to capture the elegance and compositional beauty that is often seen in the Art Nouveau movement, such as in the late great Alphonse Mucha. Captivating emotion through color, composition, detail, texture, and conveying unique typography. I approached this poster with a somewhat time-period oriented limited color palette primarily using 4 colors. Secondary elements are essential and for this I felt like the palm tree leaves and hibiscus flowers were somewhat signature to Lana Del Rey's cinematic, elegant, west coast vibes.
